Cavities are common indicators of poor oral health but did you know that your dental health can influence your overall health? Heart disease, dementia, respiratory infections, and complications with diabetes all have been linked to bad dental hygiene. Gum disease can also negatively impact pregnant women by increasing risks of low baby weight and early births.

Get the facts so you can flash those healthy, pearly whites for years to come. Call Tampa Family Health Centers today.

Good Dental Hygiene Essentials:

  • Regular Dental Check-ups: See your dentist at Tampa Family Health Centers twice a year for cleanings and other preventive care. Follow your dentist's advice regarding continued care.
  • Brush your teeth: Brushing your teeth at least twice a day can help keep your teeth healthy and strong. Make it a habit to brush in the morning and just before bedtime.
  • Toothpaste: Using toothpaste that is recommended by your dentist. Most dentists recommend a fluoride toothpaste. Check with your dentist about what is best for your teeth.
  • Flossing: Toothbrushes don't always catch leftover particles. Flossing daily can help remove additional bacteria and plaque.
  • Mouthwash: A thorough rinse can help you get to areas that both the toothbrush and floss might have missed ensuring a thorough clean.
  • Dental Hygiene Fun Fact: Your toothbrush matters! To take the best care of your teeth it's important to choose the right toothbrush and to replace it every four months. Ask your dentist what kind of toothbrush (soft, hard) is right for you.
